Lowell Catholic’s Walk-A-Thon

 

On October 20th, Lowell Catholic students will lace up their sneakers in an effort to raise over $85,000 in support of their school community. This year’s “Let’s Get Loud” theme has brought a celebratory feeling to the event. In this student-led fundraising effort, each student has taken on a personal goal to raise funds in support of the school.

 

Last year, students from the High School and Elementary School collaboratively raised more than $85,000 to support initiatives that directly benefit students including advancements in technology, student life activities and co-curricular clubs.

 

During the annual event, students are joined by faculty, staff and parent volunteers, making it a fun day for all. LC’s elementary students enjoy activities on campus, while our middle and high school students take on a three mile hike around the Highland’s neighborhood in Lowell.

 

If you are interested in helping to support Catholic education, no contribution is too big or too small.  Donations for the “Let’s Get Loud” Walk-A-Thon campaign can be made online at www.lowellcatholic.org/walk2017, by cash or check made payable to  Lowell Catholic  and mailed to Lowell Catholic, Attention: Advancement Office, 530 Stevens Street, Lowell, MA 01851.

Lowell Catholic welcomed the newest (and youngest) Crusaders in Alison Bedard's pre-kindergarten class Wednesday. Many children were excited to jump right in and play with new friends and new toys, including Jacob McCluskey, who was very excited to share his love of dinosaurs with his classmates, and Brooke Dastou, who loves the fish tank full of goldfish but wants to know, "Where's Dory?"

LOWELL -- Lowell Catholic students in grades 1-12 returned to campus this past week.

Freshmen started the week early on Monday with a retreat day full of ice-breakers, games that helped to forge new bonds of friendship and upperclassmen who shared a bit about their experience as a Crusader.

"It was a seamless transition from Lowell Catholic Elementary to the high school," freshman Lexi Guignard said. "I already felt like part of the community, and although I was really coming to a new school, I truly felt at home. I also saw other freshmen that I met last year at the citywide retreats hosted by LC and am excited to be making so many new friends at once"

On Tuesday, LC's Elementary students in grades 1-8 began their school year, greeted by Head of School Maryellen DeMarco, Associate Principal of Elementary Education Dan Price and high-school student volunteers eager to welcome families back to school. Sister Jane Holland led the assembled students in prayer and wished everyone a successful year. Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students return to campus this upcoming week.

There is space available in some levels for the 2017-2018 school year, and applications are still being accepted. There are open houses planned for Oct. 19 and 22. Visit www.lowellcatholic.org/LC4ME.

LOWELL -- Incoming seniors at Lowell Catholic took part in the school's annual three-day Senior Leadership Institute Retreat earlier this month.

The retreat, held at Prindle Pond Conference Center in Charlton, prepared the students for their new leadership role as seniors on campus this fall.

Deacon Fran Burke, director of spiritual life at LC, coordinated the event and included exercises that facilitated bonding, self-discovery and growing together as a class. Outdoor adventures, such as exploring a pond and participating in a ropes course, helped to engage the students while teaching vital leadership skills.

The students will play key roles in welcoming the freshman class to campus, assisting with the freshman and middle-school retreats, and serving in leadership roles throughout the year.

Lowell Catholic, a Pre-K through grade 12 school, is accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year. It will host an open house for the high school on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 6 to 6:30 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 22, from noon to 2:30 p.m. Email admissions@lowellcatholic.org or call 978-452-1794, ext. 122, for more details. To register, visit www.lowellcatholic.org\LC4ME.
